You could always run some carbon,...that should take away the smell,...

Dary hit the nail on the head. When you moved the LR around some Dead spots in your tank was releasted into the water adding to the ocean smell. This was that tart rotten egg smell.

Ahh ok that helps explain it. I actually didnt think about that. Usually answers are the most obvious lol

I'm actually running carbon now but it's due for a change in five days. That should help for sure.

Thanks so much guys!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
